Music: Current count 20246  rated (+6), 696  unrated (-3). Figured this week would be washed out, but had no idea how severely. Did my big hardware swap on Tuesday. The hardware part worked very smoothly. Ubuntu 12.04 came with some unpleasant surprises, mostly in the form of a new window manager which, for starters, didn't make it at all evident how to get a command line shell. Also soon became apparent that aside from the browser (Firefox) the default install included none of the major software packages I depend on every day. I've fixed much of that now -- replaced Unity with Xfce, have Emacs as my text editor, Apache/PHP/MySQL for websites, Gimp for touching up album cover scans. I should be back in business, but I started running a fever Wednesday night. Most likely a generic flu. Should be clearing up about now, and indeed I feel a bit better today than yesterday, but I'm still down (and down in the dumps). I've done no Jazz Prospecting since last Monday, nor have I felt like writing about anything else. Not even playing music right now. When I do, it's all old stuff.
